In addition to our website, we also have an app for your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch to keep track of tides and weather from your mobile device.
The TidesPro app is a powerful tides and marine weather app that’s also privacy conscious. Get the latest tide predictions, whether you’re fishing, going to the beach, boating, kayaking, surfing, or planning a trip. See accurate tides for the current day, or monthly in the future, as well as on-shore weather, NOAA marine forecasts, and buoy observations at the tide station. TidesPro also provides comprehensive solutions for you to access tides, including home screen widgets (themeable!), lock screen widgets, and Apple Watch complications.
Note: TidesPro requires an internet connection and provides predictions for the United States and territories only.

Who is this app for?
The app provides information about tide predictions and marine weather for many types of people, whether you’re fishing, going to the beach, boating, kayaking, surfing, or planning a trip.
Origin of the app
We created the app because we’re avid fishermen and boaters, and wanted an easy to use tides and fishing times app to help give us an edge in fishing and help us figure out where to fish at a particular time, given the tides.
TidesPro is free, but the free version shows ads for our Premium service and is missing some features. TidesPro Premium removes the ads, unlocks widgets, complications, marine forecasts, favorites predictions in one place, and supports ongoing development of the app.
TidesPro Premium is currently priced at $1.99/month or $11.99/year. Our premium service has a 1 week free trial, so you can try it out. We also offer a one-time purchase, or lifetime unlock, of TidesPro Premium for $39.99 (note that the one-time option does not have a 1 week free trial offer).
We also respect your privacy -- see below for a list of data we access. Feel free to check out our app using the App Privacy Report on your iPhone/iPad vs. the actual usage of other apps.
